The Nature of Dogs

The Nature of Dogs, formerly Waggin' Tails Doggy Daycare was one of the first dog daycares to open in Sacramento County. Over many years and two amazing owners later, Waggin' Tails transitioned to The Nature of Dogs in 2023.


We are committed to upholding the legacy of Waggin' Tails and working every day to provide our clients and their dogs what they have come to love and expect while also building The Nature of Dogs for the future. We are honored and humbled to have the privilege and opportunity to take on this responsibility.

The Nature of Dogs is the only dog daycare in Sacramento County with a nearly one acre, fully fenced, and tree shaded outdoor yard. This space allows us the unique opportunity to provide dogs with what they need. Space to run, jump, romp, fetch, lounge, and be dogs. We don't need tree pattern wallpaper to trick dogs into thinking they are outside. We have the real thing. 


The Nature of Dogs is blessed to have many amazing Team Members that look after and care for your pups as if they were their own. Every Team Member is Canine CPR and First Aid certified, trained in canine communication / pack management, and love being able to spend time with the dogs.

Deric Isaacson

Deric is a father, husband, dog trainer, dog lover, and a volunteer with the El Dorado County German Shepherd Rescue. He has three wonderful dogs, Mia a GSD mix, Jackson a GSD, and Draco a Belgian Malinois who all work with him at The Nature of Dogs and his personal training business American River Canine. Occasionally, he's even lucky enough to have a foster dog with him. He enjoys hiking off leash with his dogs, and spending time with his wife and daughter in his free time. Most days you can find him here at The Nature of Dogs working with the dogs, talking to clients, and dreaming up fun new ways for us to keep the dogs mentally stimulated and happy.


Myra Muhammad

Myra is a mother, sister, dog trainer, dog lover, and a foster and/or board member with multiple German Shepherd rescues. She has three terrific dogs, Quinn a GSD, Maddie a GSD, and Cayden a Czech Shepherd. It's hard to find her without a foster dog or a shelter dog awaiting transport in her home. She enjoys training with her dogs in rally and obedience, and helping people with their service dogs. Most days you can find her here at The Nature of Dogs spending time with the dogs, helping Team Members, and finding more ways for us to support the dog rescue community.
